Motor guide mount

I have a Motorguide mount that fits a 36v or 24v trolling motor. Came off a 36v TM. Located in Rohnert Park. A new one will cost you over $250, so make me an offer. Used in good condition. Everything works. You can pick up in Petaluma. No hardware, just the mount.

Re: Shakey heads

I prefer the Spot Remover shakey heads. They stand up the bait and have a good sized screw to secure the bait. Stay away from those with the small fine wire screw because you can never get the baits on those.
